Mom’s Night Out, Playdates, and a New Friend

Piglet and I have been so busy this past week! We’ve been little social butterflies, and it’s been so much fun. It all started on Monday when I was out walking Monkey and Piglet. We ran into a really friendly mom walking her daughter. We struck up a conversation and ended up walking together. Her little one is 11 months old, and they’re a military family that’s new to the neighborhood. I think I’ll refer to her as MilWife. She was super friendly and she ended up inviting me to a party at her house for the next night!

It turned out to be a Favorite Things Party. Have you heard of these? I looked it up on Pinterest and apparently they’re really popular. The idea is to learn about new products while also getting to know new people. The picture on the right is all the great loot I got to take home from the party. Such a fun idea!

favoritethingsI had a great time, and it was really nice getting out of the house by myself. I met some really sweet ladies, and we all swapped mommy stories. Can I tell you how good it felt to finally be able to participate in mommy talk? I feel like for the past two years I’ve been on the outside looking in, and now I’m finally part of the mommy club.

Wednesday MilWife and I met up and went for another stroller walk. She took me on my first geocaching hunt. It was fun! I’m excited to have such a fun and outgoing new friend. We have a lot in common, such as our love for holidays, hosting parties, and being active. It turns out she also does elimination communication with her baby too! It’s fun to meet a kindred spirit, and I’m looking forward to hanging out with her more.

Yesterday Piglet and I met up with Good Girl and her twins and took the boys to Fairytale Town. There is a whole lot of cuteness happening in these pics. P1090664



Piglet had a lot of fun watching the big boys. He kept bouncing in my arms and cooing. You can just tell he can’t wait to run around!

Today we made the drive to visit Geeky and Piglet got to hang out with his favorite Godfather. He always gets the smiles out of him!


Their Great Dane Horse is so good with Piglet too. Piglet got a kick out of cuddling with him.

wyattcoopGeeky, Piglet and I went for a walk in the park and had lunch. We met an overly friendly squirrel, got a lot of smiles from strangers over Piglet’s shades, and enjoyed a beautiful fall day in the park. It was great connecting with my sweet friend. She opened up about how she and FireGuy are trying for a baby, and I’m so excited for her. I hope hers is an easy journey to parenthood, and I’m so excited for what lies ahead of her.


After the park, Piglet and I stopped by to visit the inlaws for a bit. It was a long day and by the time we got home I was beat! We’ve had such a busy week, and I’m looking forward to tomorrow and doing absolutely nothing. Here’s hoping Piglet decides to sleep in for once!
